TV meme, day 26  

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale

It had been my understanding that Philip Glenister didn't want to do a third series of Ashes to Ashes, so the cliffhanger ending of 2.08 took me completely by surprise at the time. Only later did I learn that a third series had been commissioned.

Something similar happened with Nurse Jackie. I thoroughly enjoyed this show, but the final episode (or so I thought) ended in chaos. It all but killed my love for the series, until I read on IMDb that there was going to be a second season. (And, as I now see, a third one as well. How silly of me to think they would quit so soon!) Anyway, looking forward to it.

Current Mood: soresore
Current Music: Spain - Tom Robinson

You still haven't mentioned The Wire... :(

I haven't watched The Wire, and I'm not sure if I want to. I know everybody says it's great, but it doesn't appeal to me.

I just checked my library's catalogue though and they have the DVDs. I can borrow the first season and see if I like it. (But first, and finally, Slings & Arrows.)

After three episodes I was hooked. And you should try Dexter as well. But those are really the only tv-series I really know hahah.

Oh, I watch Dexter on TV. The VPRO broadcast the third(?) season (with Miguel) a couple of months ago. But I think it suffers from the same problem most long-running American series have: every new season is less good than the previous one. Downward spiral.

no no no... the fourth is sublime! just watch them as backups *cough*... in one run.

OK, I promise I'll watch the fourth season, but I think I'll wait for the VPRO. My poor old computer can't handle anymore, erm, backups at the mo. ;)

one episode a week won't do. get yourself a nice external hd disk.

I have two already :D and the VPRO do usually broadcast one ep a day, which is fine by me. I think I'll get fed up if I start binge-watching Dexter. (I'm already a bit fed up with it, I didn't really care for season 3.)
